The rooms looked lovely on the website and our room was a good size. The disappointment was that it was overlooking the busy main road outside and the noise from it was mostly continiuous. No other rooms were available for us to move. Wifi strength was poor and our bathroom had a stained glass window overlooking the stair outside and anyone on the stair could see you. It needed a blind. The breakfast was good and the hosts were pleasant but I would choose a quieter location if I was coming to this town again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Alford House Bed and Breakfast is a family run B&B situated in the picturesque village of Corfe Castle. The village is central to the Isle of Purbeck, an ideal location from which to explore the many nearby places of interest, including: the sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage, Wareham, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the Jurassic Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Alford House dates back to the 17th Century and, until the mid 1980s, the property was a local grocery store known as Driscoll's. Alford House was refurbished by ourselves, and we now live in one part of the house with a separate area for B&B. For guests there is private, off-road parking and your own private entrance into the house. ... more less
